These new Cone 6-10 Opulence
EnviroColors Glazes come in 9 great colors or as a set of one each.
Offered here as pints liquid. Pease call to special order dry
versions or very large quantities.
Opulence Envirocolors have a satiny matte surface with 10 earthy colors
available. They are compatible with Opulence Gloss and Reduction-Look
glazes. The Envirocolors do not flow when used alone, but give a color
variation with textured surfaces. Designed for Cone 6 electric firing,
we have had success with tests in C/10 gas reduction and C/10 wood
firing. They are completely barium and lead-free and are microwave and
Opulence Glaze Mixing Instructions
Glaze sold in liquid pints and gallons are mixed to the correct ratio,
sieved and ready to use. Opulence Glaze sold in powder form will need to
be mixed with the correct amount of water and sieved through an 80 mesh
screen. Basic Ratio of powder glaze to water by weight is 1 lb of
powder glaze to 0.9 lbs of water. 5lb example: In One Gallon container,
add 5lb of dry glaze to 4.5 lbs of water (9 cups). 25lb example: In Five
Gallon container, add 25lb of dry glaze to 22.5 lb of water (45 cups).
*Always add dry glaze to water. * Avoid breathing dust of any dry glaze.
Wear appropriate respirator when mixing glaze and work in a
well-ventilated area. *When in liquid form, Opulence Glazes can be
dipped, poured, sprayed or brushed without the addition of
deflocculants, binders, etc. *Opulence Glazes do not contain compounds
of lead or barium and have been tested to assure non-toxicity and are
food safe. *Opulence Glazes are dishwasher and microwave safe. *Specific
Gravity should be 150-155 grams per 100 cc of mixed glaze. *Feel free
to contact us for further information.
How to Measure Specific Gravity
determine if Opulence Glaze is the correct ratio of water to dry glaze
you can measure Specific Gravity. This method is helpful if you are
concerned the glaze is too thick or too thin. *Specific Gravity is found
by the weight of mixed water and glaze. Weigh 100cc of mixed glaze on a
gram scale. (Be sure to tare out, or zero out, the weight of the
container.) The correct specific gravity of Opulence Glaze will be
150-155 grams. If 100cc of mixed glaze weighs more than 155 grams, there
is too much glaze in the mix (therefore the glaze is too thick and
additional water is needed). If it weighs less than 150 grams, there is
too much water (therefore the glaze is too thin and after the glaze is
settled, some of the water needs to be cast off). **Don't have a gram
scale? Call us for other options to find the specific gravity of your
